I am trying to get off of cymbalta after taking it for 10 years @ 120mg a day. Yes, I was prescribed cymbalta 60mg bid. Now missing a single days dose and I start getting zaps 24 hours later until the dip in systemic exposure (AUC) is recovered. If I miss two or three days (due to cost) I become unable to work or get around, because of the brain zaps. Any suggestions from someone who has successfully detoxifying from Cymbalta on handling the zaps and surviving them would be appreciated.
